important than what happens in the united states, we do not cover it. we are engaged by what happens syria, but i do not know if shed a great deal of light. i know you began by asking what is happening in gaza and what i think about that. >> yes. >> any time israel is involved in a story, did becomes excruciatingly -- id becomes excruciatingly difficult to cover, because there is a sense of identity in this country with israelis, and many reporters, old friends and colleagues of mine used to be criticized for taking an anti- israeli point of view. he spent many years living in the arab world and had a sympathetic. of view to arabs. i think what is happening in gaza right now meets in the definition of tragedy. the israelis cannot be expected to stand by while their cities are rocketed. on the other hand, the idea that the israeli defense forces are equally professional, the number of casualties on the palestinian side are going to be much greater. they are leaving an impression there is something unfair. this is the time you need correspondents who have spent years in the region, because b

are infinitely more engaged right now but the coverage of what's happening in syria isn't bad but i don't know that it showed a great deal of light, and part of the problem is even though he were asking about -- i know you began by asking about what is happening, and what i think of the coverage of that today. any time israel is involved in the story it becomes an increase do it excruciatingly difficult story for american journalists to cover because there is for the most part a natural sympathy in this country. a sense of identity in this country and many reporters both friends and colleagues of mine, the late peter jennings used to road defeat to write and be criticized for taking an anti-israeli point of view not so much that he had spent many years living in the arab world and had a sympathetic point of view to arabs. i fink what is happening in gaza means almost any definition of tragedy. they cannot be expected on the one hand to stand by while their cities are rocketed. on the other hand, the great irony of the paradox of that story is because the israeli defense forces are infinitely m
in smuggling and instability in the sanaa since the arab awakening. we have the disruption in syria and how this plays out. syria being a supporter in times of hamas. this is an important moment and i think that's one of the big reasons that secretary clinton thought that this is the time she had to be in the middle east. >> and here she is at the end of her tenure, she has said she wants to leave. there's a lot of controversy over who is going to replace her. susan rice has been blamed by republicans for what may be inartful testimony, not testimony, inartful television commentary. she was reading from talking points that were prepared by the intelligence community and last night, i get calls from top intelligence officials saying, it was our fault, it was not political, they are reacting to a lot of the accusations on "meet the press." >> if you remember, we were both on "meet the press" that morning with susan rice and she said what she said and we both sort of -- >> looked at each other. >> looked at each other and said what? where is that coming from? what we knew, it wasn't coming fro
volatile there not only in what's happening in israel and in gaza but also in syria and egypt and in lebanon, frank. >> now, the u.s. government has a strong stand against hamas. so who will meet with the hamas leaders to broker the peace deal? >> reporter: that's egypt's president right now. mohamed morsi has been meeting with hamas. of course, the united states won't sit down with hamas leaders because they have not renounced terrorism. so that complicates the situation even further. but egypt has stepped up to try to broker this peace deal. there was word that there would be an announcement of some type of temporary truce a 24-hour cooling-off period this afternoon. we haven't heard anything yet. but the international community scrambling right now at this hour to try to find a way to stop these air strikes, frank. >> very difficult decision or situation over there. okay, danielle, thank you for that live report. >>> four men are under arrest in an alleged terror plot busted in southern california. the fbi says the men conspired to kill americans overseas and in the u.s. an
border with syria. >> the foreign minister has talked with nato on the issue and they are in the final stages. there are likely to come from germany, one of the only three nato countries the patriot missiles in their arsenal. they have signaled that they would agree to the request. >> the french government has given assurances that the nation's economy is sound after u.s. credit rating agency moody's stripped them of their prize the a.a.a. status. this follows the cut by standard and poor's and it was expected. >> hollande is trying to revive the eurozone the second-largest economy. moody's had nothing good to say about france's economic prospects. they say the country has become less competitive and its labor market has turned staid. they say this makes them more bolt -- vulnerable to turbulence elsewhere in the eurozone. the french finance minister moscovici rejected the you downgrade. >> this does not put into question the fundamentals of our economy or reforms undertaken hat by the government. it does not? creditworthiness. >> he blames the previous french government for failing to
to, but there are all these powder kegs. pakistan still, obviously iran, number one, syria, what the hell is going to happen in syria, libya's not settled. the instability is widespread and i think one of the problems here is for the obama administration, particularly in a second term, what's the theory of the case, what's the overall foreign policy. what happens, they go from crisis management to crisis management. you're never going to get a one size fits all in terms of the policy but people need to know what the united states stands for. i think the president now, after winning re-election, has moral authority in the world to a certain extent and he maybe needs to use that and develop these relationships with the leaders. clearly with prime minister netanyahu, there is not a relationship of trust. there should be, and one should be built. >> president obama's currently on a tour of asia. some people think he should come back and deal with what they see as the more pressing issue of israel and the palestinians. what is your view? >> again, that's crisis management. while he's
its ability to be a kind of problem region. i think syria has been of a bigot, a sobering reality check for the turks -- has been a big, sobering reality check for the turks. i do not see a huge gap because they are now home to -- they would like to see a more activist eu policy to relieve the burden on themselves. i do not think we have any huge differences over the long term outcomes in syria. >> yes. the gentlemen. -- gentleman. >> i have some questions about iran and nuclear policy. in the last press conference by president obama -- a something in this press conference which i thought was different from the past. all along in recent months he has been talking about a nuclear bomb or nuclear weapon, specifically mentioning that a something iran cannot get. in a press conference, he went beyond that and said nuclear capability. i wonder if this is the same position, or is this something new, changing course? the second thing is -- for the entire panel, ellen laipson, too. the red lines, basically encouraged by the israelis, those have been gone for some time. now there is someth
's attention off of what they are doing in syria. as well as their ongoing nuclear program. as you mentioned, what is going on with egypt and turkey, it has been a rough neighborhood. they got a lot more difficult for them to take on these developments. megyn: hillary clinton sweeps and suites in at the last moment. if you watch the rocket fire rained down in israel, here you go. i assume they wouldn't be sending her they didn't have a deal? >> i think the administration wants to be seen as playing the role of peacemaker in august. i don't necessarily think it's a done deal that there is going to be a cease-fire. after all, it is to iran's benefit if they continue to perfect the firing systems the way they deploy them and command and control them. the upside for the israelis is that they now know that some of the vulnerabilities of the byron jones system and they know it can be overwhelmed by roche fire. so they are going to have to improve what they're doing to improve their people. as long as iran gets away with sending these emissions through egypt and lebanon with hezbollah, it's going t
. >>> as the violence rages here in israel and gaza, peace is also hard to come by in nearby syria. but a major development today could help the rebels gain some ground. standby for that. and we'll have the latest on the secretary of state hillary clinton's push for peace. she's here in jerusalem right now. she's at the prime minister's office meeting with benjamin netanyahu. lots of breaking news happening right here. on gasoline. i am probably going to the gas station about once a month. last time i was at a gas station was about...i would say... two months ago. i very rarely put gas in my chevy volt. i go to the gas station such a small amount that i forget how to put gas in my car. [ male announcer ] and it's not just these owners giving the volt high praise. volt received the j.d. power and associates appeal award two years in a row. ♪ i heard you guys can ship ground for less than the ups store. that's right. i've learned the only way to get a holiday deal is to camp out. you know we've been open all night. is this a trick to get my spot?

with syria. that's according to the head of the nato military alliance. he he expects the turks to formally request the patriot air to surface missiles in the coming days any deployment would be for defensive purposes. turkey shares longest border with syria and former allies have recently exchanged rocket fire. meanwhile syrian rebel firefighters claim they seized a military base on 00 outskirts of capital city of damascus and group of islamist within the rebel ranks claims that it has rejected the new western-backed' session group a potential major set back in the effort to topple the syrian president bashar assad. basically i just said it's very confusing. passengers on the italian airliner survived what one of them described as 10 seconds of terror when their plane hit turbulence and plunged some 10,000 feet. airline officials say it happened over the atlantic ocean on a flight from cuba to italy. sudden drop injured 30 people or so. nothing serious but just scrapes and bruises. pilots reported the plane itself is fine. they alan landed safely at their destination in millan. what happen
the situation in syria that is so violent and i think israel knows that it wants to be careful not to let this out of hand. and so maybe this three party, i agree with martin, this three-party agreement could be very important and maybe a sign that in his second term president obama is going to get more engaged in the peace process. there has been talk of sending president clinton as a mideast envoy. i thought that was an intriguing idea. but at least i think this is -- these are all very good signs for the situation. >> e.j., stay with us, and martin fletcher, thanks to you. i want to bring in senator chris koonce. senator, good morning. >> good morning 0, chris. >> the senate did unanimously pass that resolution standing by israel, something you co-response arored. what do you think hillary clinton brings to this now? >> well, i think secretary clinton moving to the middle east to stand by our most important ally, israel, is an important signal of our engagement to unanimous ly r reaffirm the right for self-defense and for us to support systems like iron dome which is made possible and
's member were involved in on attack on the american embassy in benghazi and sending fighters into syria, and in yemen those that were responsible for the so-called underpanteds bomber. so these different franchises while maybe not having think ability to carry out mass attacks like the 9/11 attack still can cause great violence. >> jennifer: really appreciate you coming in. thank you so much eric schmidt. >> thank you. >> jennifer: appreciate it. up next the saying it all depends on your point of view is especially relevant when discussing drones. there is a human dynamic that goes well beyond the strategy and statistics and we'll tell you about that right after the break. (vo)answer: pour disaronno into a flute glass and top with prosecco. brought to you by disaronno. be originale. unwrap your paradise. soft, sweet coconut covered in rich, creamy chocolate. almond joy and mounds. unwrap paradise. >> most of the media coverage and the u.s. government mind in the united states is that drone strikes are very precise, and they target with surgical precision particularl
have had a tense relationship since hamas supported the uprising in syria. what's that relationship and what's iran's role right now? >> absolutely. there are sectarian issues here. iran is predominantly shiite and hamas is predominantly sunni. the leader of hamas moved headquarters out of damascus and sided with the opposition. there is that real tension. in many ways, gaza reflects the kind of rivalry playing out in syria and elsewhere in the region. hamas relies on iran for military training and its most important weaponry, but there is this tension over syria. it's in syria's interest right now to see all the world's attention focused on gaza rather than on damascus to take some of the pressure off. these relationships in the region are shifting. part of what we're seeing, little gaza, it's important not just for what happens on israeli issues but the wider dynamics of the shifting sands across the middle east. >> let me ask you a question about what happens with hamas, depending how this plays out. there's one theory, dennis ross from the washington institute of near east polic
relationship with syria, its headquarters of its external leadership in damascus and most of its relationship with iran. i think there has been an effort by factions inside gaza, to try to pull ultimate decision-making, real power within the group -- and in order to do that, they started firing rockets to israel again and say we rule and we fight and we're the decisionmakers. you guys go and deal with our friends and get us money and support from the arab states, but that's -- >> so they're finding their political voice in many respects. earlier today piers morgan spoke with israeli president shimon peres. let's take a quick listen. one moment. >> we will work with the people of gaza to try not to make their lives difficult. gaza is open, the economic situation was improved and we don't know why all of a sudden they decided to shoot. >> so that was the president shimon peres. is that accurate portrayal? >> yeah, i think there is a lot of truth in what he said actually. i strongly disagreed with the characterization you just had from the spokeswoman, but i think that's not unfair. i think bet
unrest in syria, in iran, in the region generally, i think this. during this fight the united states needs to signal that we are going to be with israel and going to be a strong ally from the outset and throughout whatever difficulties may arise. martha: anyone who has watched the situation knows there has about in the past been tensions between benjamin netanyahu and president obama. is that perhaps why hillary is the one to go or is it too early for presidential involvement. >> i think it's too early. she is there to set the stage for things likely to come. we saw the president come out and issue a rather trapbg statemenstatement of support for israel. the increase in the amount of rocket fire coming from gaza, you had hillary clinton now set to meet with benjamin netanyahu, i think trying to do two things, basically, the first she wants to avoid a ground war. i think the united states government doesn't want to see this progress or escalate. second, i think she is trying to buy the united states a little wiggle room and flexibility when it comes to the bigger issue of iran and mi
's support came from syria and iran. now it has turkey, qatar it's less dependent on iran than it ever has been. >> eliot: unfortunately i think we'll have this conversation over and over and over again. james traub and joe many thanks tonight. we'll go up the big top for the circus that is the modern gop with sam seder coming up on "viewpoint." to me now? you know the kind of guys that do reverse mortgage commercials? those types are coming on to me all the time now. (vo) she gets the comedians laughing and the thinkers thinking. >>ok, so there's wiggle room in the ten commandments, that's what you're saying. you would rather deal with ahmadinejad than me. >>absolutely. >> and so would mitt romney. (vo) she's joy behar. >>and the best part is that current will let me say anything. what the hell were they thinking? these talking points, that the right have, about the "heavy hand of government" ... i want to have that conversation. let's talk about it. really? you're going to lay people off because now the government is going to help you fund your healthcare. really? i want to ha
of when that rain arrives into the bay area. and an update for the syria key resorts. kirkwood doing the best, 26 to 36 inches. that full seven-day forecast in minutes. >>> tonight in health matters, teenage boys are bulking up and not always in healthy ways. a new study from the university of minnesota examined for minnesota 2,700 teenagers at urban middle schools and high schools. more than two-thirds of the boys say they've altered their eating habits while 90% say they're exercising to increase muscle size or tone. 80% of girls are also exercising more to be more buff. more than a third are using protein powders or shakes and about 6% report they're using steroids. experts now ask if they're resorting to steroids at a ages of 13 to 15, what will they be doing at the ages of 18 or 20? >>> day care has many benefits for children but a new study is finding more children are likely to be overweight than those who stay home with their parents. canadian researchers followed about 1,500 kids over a period of a few years and found that 50% were more likely to be overweight or obese. but
the rebels. his favorite approach to libya, we should arm the rebels. his favorite approach to syria was, arm the rebels. that just works everywhere. i understand the republican party needs somebody to tell them what to do. needs somebody to tell them what direction to point in when it comes to foreign policy. but they haven't figured out if iraq was a bad idea. if that was a bad idea, how did that happen in your own party? in this last election, the republican party tried to just punt on the issue of foreign policy. by the time of that third debate, it was more like a forfeit, okay, you win, we don't want to talk about it. but you don't get to decide when you want to learn about it or talk about it. the policy committee is in congress that makes decision about foreign policy this v to make decision about foreign policy. the senate has to confirm somebody as secretary of state, even if john mccain decides he doesn't want one this year. there's a basic level of competence required, even of of the opposition party on the subject. not after what george bush did with it. even if you're just in co
for the palestinians and draw the support of countries like egypt, you know, what's left of syria, jordan and the rest of it. and i think they're continuing to look for some sort of arab backing, hoping to get something out of it. >> reporter: ben, i want to ask you, i talked to the foreign ministry spokesman earlier. he sort of demured on the answer. does hamas come out of this stronger than they were before and stronger than the palestinian group which controls the west bank? >> reporter: certainly if you look at the experience of the last 20 years, yes, it probably will. you look at hezbollah after the 2006 war. they emerged stronger. hamas has -- came out of the operation four years ago with even more power here. what they've done is they've shown the arab world, the arab street, that they can fight, that their rockets are getting better, that their methods are getting better, and they're winning praise for it. they've got the support of the egyptian government. not militarily, but they have the sympathy of the egyptian people. other arab capitals have had demonstrations in support of the palestin
-elected president. and also let's not forget the crisis in syria. th has been going for months. the slaughter of its own people with the international community right now appearing to be helpless in terms of trying to stop it, shep. >> out of time. thank you both. we will be back as breaking news develops. there has not been an explosion in the region according to our own reporting and those are the sources with whom we are affiliated in more than an hour. so since before secretary clinton hit the ground there have been no explosions on either side. something is in the works. what is it first of all, and can it hold? these are matters we will have more insight in the minutes and hours ahead. stay with us. police are now saying the explosion that damaged dozens of homes in the united states in indianapolis was not an accident. wait until you hear the theories. investigators are looking at a case of murder. the major players in the case and what cops are saying about those major players. that's next. >>> a quarter until the hour. cops are investigating an explosion as a possible homicide. you have see
in the arab world. the question is can -- how does it play in syria? do iranians exploit it to their end? at the moment, if the grand troops can be restrained and netanyahu should be credited with responding to president obama on this there is some reason for optimism. >> shannon: all right. leigh it there on this topic. stick around, next up the director of national intelligence in the cross heirs over benghazi -- crosshairs oaf benghazi. black friday's here. do you think walmart can get you a great deal on the items you want? i don't know! let's go see. vizio 60" smart led for $688. that's a $310 savings. that is amazing! the first and only place to shop this black friday. savings start at 8pm thursday, more electronics at 10pm. walmart.

is hamas had 10,000 rockets in gaza to start. hezbollah has 40-60,000 rockets in syria and southern lebanon. iron dome is qualitatively superior to anything that hamas or hezbollah has. melissa: thank you for coming on, that is all very important information i have not heard anywhere else and i hope you'll come back on soon. >> absolutely. thank you for having me. melissa: crude oil futures falling 3% after hope for a cease-fire in the gaza strip immediate concerns of supply risk in the middle east. let's hope those hopes are not premature. and chevron files and ethics complaint against new york comptroller, the oil giant says it received at least $60,000 in campaign and donations for backing an environmental lawsuit against chevron in ecuador. the stock closing down slightly. in the first auction of greenhouse gas credits, allowances for the equivalent of 28.7 million-ton of co2 sold off november 14 auction. the sales rate almost $300 million for the cash-strapped state. next on "money," hewlett-packard could owe billions in a bad deal gone wrong. but is it their fault? and who is going to
into syria. the fellow that did the movie to begin with got murdered. i agree to put some other information on -- am going to put some other information on youtube. some of it is so graphic that will have to get it myself. soldiers and democrats hate soldiers. i do not know why they hate them so bad. this movie is when to make amends with them. i appreciate your time. guest: i look forward to seeing the evidence, but one of the great myths is the weapons of mass destruction were taken to syria. i have looked at the evidence that has been available. the best evidence is the truck convoys moving from baghdad to syria just before the american invasion. what they were with the bath party records and personal wealth and all sorts of things that later were used to do fund the beginning of the insurgency in iraq. it was not weapons of mass destruction. there are films of weapons of mass destruction be used, because the dog hussain use them against the kurdish people in airstrikes years earlier. i wonder whether some of what you've seen might be the strikes on the kurds. host: a question on twitter
hezbollah on the north, they've got hamas, syria and egypt, and we've got a proxy war by iran. >> and great instability occurring in jordan. look. all of this goes back to things like benghazi because in the aftermath of this administration claiming all kinds of different things about the death of bin laden and now terrorism was done, the reality is the propaganda arms of radical islam to include al-qaeda are out there saying the americans have been driven out of iraq. we're burned their missions, their diplomats are dead and we can do it again. the recruitment drive among the martyrs, the martyr messages going out through these mosques and propaganda organizations have increased ten fold since benghazi. >> here's the question i have. for those that don't understand what's happening, i say we're living through a period, history will describe it as the rise of the radical islamists. am i right? >> that's why i wrote the book. >> shameless self promotion, but that's what's in this book. it's all there. >> you take us into the future. >> yes. >> this is a future where the nra doesn't exist, a
in syria, and we have said assad must go and do nothing to facilitate that process to obviously the iranians who are sending those missiles in, as you mentioned, through the sudan into egypt and then to gaza, and those are longer range missiles. thank god for iron dome, by the way, and so we have to make sure that we reassert american influence and that means american power and that doesn't mean leading from behind. >> senator, thank you very much. i'll tell you that i wish america paid more attention to what's going on in the sudan. they are the route for those powerful missiles and so much other bad things. thank you, sir. >> thank you, and you're right about sudan. >>> and tonight both israel and hamas are ramping up attacks. hours ago an israeli air strike killed a top militant leader. it's just about dawn in the region, about 5:14 a.m. fox news correspondent david lee miller is live in southern israel with the very latest. david lee? >> greta, it is just about dawn. it is the dawn of a new day. this could be the most critical day yet in this conflict. in the next few hours
're not talking about syria, not talking about sudan, we're not talking about international crises. we're talking about hunger here at home where we've got the food and the nutrition programs to deal with this. of the 46 million food stamps half are kids. we have school breakfasts, summer meals. if we can get a sufficient number enrolled we can make a difference. it's a health care, education issue. how can we have a strong america with weak kids? >> bill makes a great kid. we are the united states of america, we are one of the richest if not the richest on the planet and the fact is that one in five americans is not getting the food they need. this is basic survivalp. the thing that shocks me when we have this conversation, when we talk about food stamps, the rhetoric around food stamps, whether the presidential election cycle where you're vilified for being part of a taker and one who is on the doll of the makers. and then the reality of actually being on food stamps and a really great article in "rolling stone" several months ago that talked about what you need to meet the threshold to get on
regime in egypt. we have a new one in libya. we're going to have a new one in syria. a lot of questions about what's going to replace them. in iran, you probably could replace them with a pretty solid pro-western government if you did the right things. >> brian: kind of encouraged that president obama said he does have words of support for israel. >> they're getting bombed every day. and it turns out this has been going on for some time of the two, three a day now for almost a year. >> brian: what would the fallout be if they send 75,000-plus troops into gaza on the ground today, tomorrow, the next day? just in europe what, would the fallout be around the world? >> i think it would be an anti-israel attitude, unrealistic, and just the public relations thing that they've bottled and lost for a long time. is it a sound military move? maybe. maybe they have to do that if they want to make sure that they're not going to be vulnerable if they have to attack iran. >> steve: so our secretary of state, hillary clinton, is going to go after that. >> she's going to try to stop it. >> steve: let's
further the instability in the surrounding nations. >> and josh, take us to the north. lebanon and syria playing critical roles as well? >> absolutely. let's touch on these. zoom in the video up to lebanon. lebanon has a long history of racked by violence. recently there was an intelligence chief killed in a bombing inside lebanon. also one more thing that you should understand when you think about lebanon and that is the role of hezbollah. i believe we have video of hezbollah here. always a power strug inside lebanon involving hezbollah and the united states and other countries consider a terrorist organization. it's fiercely opposed to israel, any conflict between israel and palestinians can further the instability inside lebanon. finally, maybe last thing what we're talking about here, absolutely not the least, zoom to the east in this map, we're going over to syria which has been one of the biggest stories in the world since march of last year. there's a war raging there. and the opposition has been giving new figures lately about this war. the opposition has been saying that now as
has taken against syria have that actually contribute any money to the humanitarian crisis that now exist in syria? >> i think occupation from russia and china have been very small. i will have to write to the honorable lady with details about the. they are not so large that have been committed in my mind, let us put it that way. we will encourage, i have encouraged before russia to make a contribution to those u.n. funds, but the biggest contribution, the biggest occupation comes from the states emphatically from the european union, third from the united kingdom. and, of course, we are also contributing the european union money. so the backing for these things is very heavily western as things stand. >> i know the foreign secretary said he didn't want to debate about the portion it or proportion. but while he is right to condemn militant rocket attacks would not also condemn the loss of innocent lives, particularly children? and with respect to both the u.n., is he out to be convinced that by taking the stance of the u.n. come uk government is to be taken, he doesn't risk undermini
